"The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion dollars for the first 42 presidents — number 43 added $4 trillion dollars by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion dollars of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child.
That's irresponsible. It's unpatriotic."
Hmmmmm $9t to $17T? Number 44 has added $8 trillion dollars by his lonesome in only 5 years. Is that unpatriotic?
The Outstanding Public Debt as of 14 Feb 2014 at 03:44:25 AM GMT is:
The estimated population of the United States is 317,637,292
so each citizen's share of this debt is $54,344.18. Why that's 180% increase ain't it?
The National Debt has continued to increase an average of
$2.38 billion per day since September 30, 2012!
"Today I'm pledging to cut the deficit in half by the end of my first term in office."
